Erasmus Mundus Circular Economy (CIRCLE) programme

Connected to the master’s programme we offer an Erasmus Mundus Circular Economy (CIRCLE) programme which is organised together with University of Graz, Chalmers University of Technology and Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Students in these programmes study at least at two European universities and receive either a double or a joint degree. The call for applications for the CIRCLE programme regarding the academic year 2019-2020 is open, the deadline for submissions is 15 January 2019.  

Circular Economy is an emerging interdisciplinary field combining natural, technical and social sciences in a system's view at scale levels from the global to the local. Circular Economy with its systemic view and multidisciplinary approach offers a valuable framework for higher education, therefore the CIRCLE programme intends to enable its students to identify solutions in order to cope with overarching technical, economic, environmental and societal problems, which the globe is facing.
